business owners, we naturally seek security. We love the feeling
of knowing we are taken care of, especially financially. Life is
so much easier with a solid financial cushion and a steady stream
of wonderful income-generating business, right?
But the question is: Do you seek the security you desire outside of yourself? We often fall for the false security trap: We think our clients are the source of our income, we fearfully hold on to each sale, worrying where the next one comes from. The truth is that it starts within. It starts with the understanding that as a soul-filled entrepreneuress, you are called to share your unique gift with the world, uplift others and receive money as your "return on energy".
It starts with your willingness to show up and share with joy, and receive fabulous money with the same joy: without questioning your abilities or wondering whether you're good enough. It starts with your willingness to take a leap in the dark only to find the light of who you're meant to be.
Boldly Brilliant Action
Step: Today my coach's request for you is to be
totally honest with yourself and admit what kind of energy you're
investing in your business today. Are you worried? Fearful?
Doubtful? Insecure? If that's your emotional investment, you're
likely to attract high-maintenance clients and inconsistent
What do you desire your emotional investment to be? Write down how you want to feel in your business every day, and make it your intention to keep reminding yourself of it, refocusing and reshaping until you not only intend it, you live it. It's a miraculous transformation: it turns into a powerful stream of energy that supports your actions and makes your business so much smoother, easier and fabulously effortless.
Being stuck in your past, reviewing
what went wrong, what you could have done differently,
what you should or shouldn't have done or said. That's a very
toxic place to be. It's a dark maze filled with guilt and shame
that doesn't allow you to see the light outside its walls.
What's your past, really? Only a series of choices and decisions that you made at a certain point in your life, based on your knowledge, wisdom and previous experience, using the resources available to you at that time. That choice was necessary for you to grow, learn and become better. That choice, and its result, is a gem to be used to learn and discover who you are and what you really truly want. The shame and guilt is not about the choice, but about the judgment that you see the choice through.
Boldly Brilliant Action
Step: Pick one choice or decision from the past that
still haunts you. Write down all the constrictive, negative
emotions connected to it. Now ask yourself: What did I learn from
this? How was this meant to help me on my path?
How does this experience empower you? Write down the new, positive, encouraging emotions connected to the situation now that you have turned it around. Remember, the way you see it, and the way you deal with it, is a choice, and it's only up to you.
We often frenetically search for the purpose of our life, thinking it must be something grandiose. However, your life purpose is very simple, yet incredibly powerful: To BE the best you can be, to reach for the stars, to stubbornly pursue your dreams, to share your gifts, to be of service, to continuously expand and grow.
As a soul-filled, heart-centered woman in business, you are in the most magnificent space of all. Your possibilities are truly unlimited, and there is virtually nothing you can't do, be or have. You have the ability to touch the lives of many, and make the world a better place just by being YOU.
Boldly Brilliant Action Step: Today, make a list of all the people that your being in business has touched. Not only your clients, but also your family, friends, community, your favorite causes. By being an inspiration, a beacon, through your business, you are exactly where you're meant to be, and there's no place where your light cannot shine.

Do you know that by the time you
reached school age, you had heard the word "no" approximately 40
thousand times, while the word "yes" only 6 thousand
Parents, although they usually mean well and only want to protect us, focus on what we cannot do, and do not reinforce enough what we can do. Achievements, little successes and accomplishments that should be celebrated are taken for granted, and the things they perceive as "failures" or "mistakes" are made a big deal of.
No wonder that as adult women in business, we often find it difficult to set proper boundaries and recognize what we want to say yes to, and what we need to say no to.
Today, make it your intention to say YES to bold opportunities, even if they scare you. To growth, even if you feel resistance. To reaching out, even if you feel insecure. To receiving money with joy.
To Being Boldly Brilliant in your business and in your life. And also make it your intention to say NO to energy-draining activities. To high-maintenance, demanding people. To overdelivering and undercharging. To disempowering situations.
To lack and negativity. To everything that makes you feel less than the Brilliant Goddess that you are!
I have had a lot of personal struggles with time management, being a woman trying to manage time between my career, my businesses and my household have been very challenging. I have missed several opportunities because I simply and honestly didn't have the energy to follow through on a lot of occassions. I have just recently started to master listening to myself and my body, and in listening to myself I found that the body is genious.
Our bodies will let us know when to sit down, when to get rest etc.
I was trying to cram my schedule together, make things fit because I felt that if I could get more things accomplished in my day it would make me feel better. Wrong!
Craming and trying to frame things isn't who it is that I truly am, and it took a minute for me to understand and realize that. So what I started to do was reach out for help from my support system to work this problem out, my take away after several conversations was to give myself permission to go with the flow. My flow, my way.
So once I started to gather my thoughts and pull this whole thing together, my schedule, my me time and my goals it all started to fall into place. You see I am not just an entrepreneur, I also have a full time job so one of the first things that I did with the help of my coach was rearrange my schedule based on my days off.
I don't have a regular schedule my days off fall on tuesday and wednesday, and as I tried to cram my business in those days it wasn't working. She suggested that I make one of those my day off, which is wednesday.
I was excited, I wanted to do something different for my first day off, I wanted to experience the freedom that I hadn't felt in a long time. So I went to the beach, it was 60 degrees that day and it was an hour long drive. I got there and I saw older couples walking on the boardwalk holding hands happy and full of joy.
I thought to myself this is what it feels like! I walked for eight miles and I took pictures and recorded the sound of the water hitting the rocks. I let the sun shine inside my heart. I set my intentions for the day and inhaled the air as if I were thirsty. I gave myself permission to let go, to breathe, and realign myself to flow effortlessly on my journey to help others do the same.

It is amazing how much you can accomplish when it doesn't matter who gets the credit.
There is no "I" in "TEAMWORK".
Teamwork: Simply stated, it is less me and more we.
TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More
Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.
The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Teamwork is working together — even when apart.
A job worth doing is worth doing together.
Coming together, sharing together, working together, succeeding together.
A successful team beats with one heart.

In the blink of an eye 10 years have gone by. Now you are living sleepless parental nights, growing concerns over money, power struggles, late night working hours, sexless days turn into sexless weeks and your fairy tale is officially a nightmare.
All conversations are heated and at the very least you walk away with chest pains and feelings of disgust for your partner. Your storybook life has turned you into a prisoner. You hurt. You ache physically, you’re tired emotionally, and you are feeling abandon. Prince Charming has turned into Frankenstein! As life goes by you throw yourself deeper into being a mom, the top achiever at work, or the “fixer” to your girlfriends lives.
You find yourself spending way more money than you can afford to and to your surprise you daydream about what it would be like with another man. You find yourself making excuses to avoid life. All signs it’s time to STOP.. BREATHE.. and REDISCOVER YOURSELF!
I am here to tell you there is hope and it’s easily accessible, in fact it’s located directly inside of you. You can’t buy this, you can’t borrow a friends and you can’t read a book to find it. There is a magic spot inside of you, no ladies the OTHER magic spot, where all your answers reside.
I am going to tell you in 5 easy steps how to find your magic spot! When you follow this recipe you will feel instant change happen. You will begin to desire time with yourself and solitude will bring you happiness. Answers appear and what grows inside of you feels softer, kinder, and more manageable.
How to access your MAGIC SPOT:
• Get Quiet – place yourself in surroundings that are soothing and hold special meaning to you.
• Take inventory – Identify the one issue that is the loudest; one issue that keeps you awake at night or follows you throughout your day. Gently release the others.
Imagine you are packing them away on a shelf or tying them to a balloon that is carrying them far away for now. No worries they will return you are not ignoring them forever.
• Drop Inside – Simple ask yourself what wants to be revealed with regard to issue you identified – what does it want to say to you? Allow yourself not to censor what you are feeling and thinking.
• Become the observer – Allow yourself to “sit with” the feeling/ thought. Be mindful of how it shows up in your actions/behaviors. Just watch, do not become overwhelmed with the thought. You are merely an observer.
• Practice acceptance – allow whatever is there to be there; treat it as if it were your friend (in reality it is). When we judge or avoid what IS we create more of the same.
Allow whatever is presenting itself to simple be. Talk to the feeling like you would your best friend. Be compassion, understanding, and accepting of what you are feeling. No running, no excuses.. just accept and allow. After you experience the shift (it doesn’t feel so heavy) ask what your next course of action should be.
Be mindful to really surrender to the process. This inner voice will never cause panic or make you feel afraid. If those feelings come in simply ask them to leave. Breathe through it and shift them out. Don’t wait one more minute. Try this process today and begin to experience the joy you were meant to experience.

Day one opened with International Empowerment Speaker Catrice Jackson offering up a delectable serving of the Seven Laws of Delicious Living Success. What a treat!
According to Catrice, these are the guiding principles she's created to facilitate change. They include: take control of your life, dream big, master your mindset and quit living in fear and doubt.
One of my favourite points is the idea of taking control of your life. By that she suggests, you need to own it, embrace it and choose it. When you take responsibility for your life you become the screenwriter, director and producer of your life. WHat that means is, you decide who gets to be in Your movie. Isn't that fun and liberating? And you can decide "No more, I'm not letting other people choose for me."
If you get stuck along the way one of the tools she recommends is conversational journaling. This strategy allows you to access your inner wisdom instead of seeking answers from outside yourself. To get started take out a piece of paper, find a quiet place to be with yourself without the distractions. Two important points to consider, the conversation is going to be between Me and Self. Don't overanalyze.
Your first line is Me: Dear Self, can I talk with you for a moment?
Next line: Self: I'm always here for you.
Me: I'm feeling stuck right now. I don't know what to do...
Catrice suggests that you continue the conversation to summon your own genius. As you move through this process the answers will come. She recommends starting your day off with it or using it any day or time when you feel stuck.
There's lots more goodies where that came from but I just had to share that with you. Now Catrice's strategies and tools are second to none but hearing her speak is beyond amazing. Here's what one participant had to say after her presentation. "It is so phenomenal listening Catrice M. Jackson through her great knowledge and experience..."
